The Super Eagles legend is one of the best players to have ever come out of Nigeria and one of the most skillful the football world has seen
Former Super Eagles coach and one of the teammates of Austin Jayjay Okocha during his Super Eagles days, Austin Eguavoen has said Jayjay is the most skillful player to have ever played football.
Eguavoen in a tweet reacting to FIFA handle’s question of who the most skillful footballer ever is, said that it’s the former Bolton captain, followed by Brazilian former football superstar and legend, Ronaldinho.
Ronaldinho and Okocha were teammates at French club, PSG and there have been many debates about how both players were rated in world football.
The Brazilian went on to have a splendid career at Barcelona and other European clubs before returning to Brazil where he ended his playing career.
Okocha also played in three World Cups for Nigeria and mesmerised in all of them. He was also a delight to watch at the club level but didn’t do a lot in terms of club honours.
His club career has been a source of debate for many football fans but the extent of his skillset is unarguable to even the most uninterested football fan.
